Does anyone know of a source for white cable outers? Ideally I need to be able to get it by the metre as its for a road bike which doesn't use cable stops.

Thanks..

Cheers Prof. I looked for ages on there as well. Holy mother of Merckx though, £5 a metre? Cool though thanks for looking. I will have to work out how much I need.

Is it sort of 'Magnolia' then?

No! No! No! Go and sit in the corner with the special hat on! ;)

Using brake outer on gears makes them change terribly. :roll:
